Prospect of the Day:  RHP Hiram Burgos

Burgos has always posted solid peripherals across the board, but profiles as a grinder who attacks hitters and who doesn’t possess above-average stuff on the mound. The right-hander throws a myriad of pitches and is willing to throw each and every one of them in any count against any hitter. It obviously results in attractive strikeout-to-walk ratios, but doesn’t generate much in terms of prospect buzz.

In 2011, Burgos had a 80-to-35 strikeout-to-walk ratio, yet he surrendered a .302 batting average over the course of the entire season. The organization hoped that the 24-year-old could pick up a tick or two on his fastball. That has not happened to this point, at least as of last season on the mound. If things click and the organization gets lucky, he could turn into a fringe major-league bullpen arm.

Until then, he is a very useful organizational arm and a very enjoyable guy to follow in the minor leagues due to his solid peripheral numbers.

    I know it’s early, but sheesh!

    Nashville Starters (minus Halton & Gindl): Schafer, Green, Farris, Patterson, Maldonado & Maysonet– 179AB, 36H, 11BB, 42K, .201 BA

    As a team: 302 AB, 66H, 21BB, 78K, .218 BA

    I cant find one AAA team in any league with worse numbers. And this in the supposed “hitter friendly” PCL???
